In time

I've been out all morning and was really hopeful that I would come home to good news. Since there was no news anywhere (ie-my email, the agency list, voice mail, etc...)my husband said, "Just call them." But before I did, I figured I'd check here, not at all expecting this news. I can't even believe it. I'm also suprised no one has notified any of us yet. So, our waiting continues, for an indeterminate amount of time now. I know God's timing is perfect and patience is a virtue, but I just wish He'd hurry up already.

Although, I was reminded that it did take poor Noah 100 years to build the ark. Hopefully, we won't have to wait that long!

Sorry to hear that court did not happen yesterday. I do seem to remember day you were *waiting* and you compared the excitement/stress to waiting for an Easter Basket - do you remember when that was?? ;-) I believe it was worth the wait, for sure! :-)

Oh Faith, I had totally forgotten that analogy. You are so right! This is why we need each other, isn't it? To support one another:
"Woe to the solitary man! For if he should fall there is no one to lift him up...where a lone man may be overcome, two together can resist." Ecclesiastes 4: 10-12

Thanks for the reminder.

Oh no! I'm so sorry about this delay. If it makes you feel any better, when our court case failed court the first time, it made no difference as to the time Brett traveled. That probably doesn't make you feel better, but I'm not sure what to say. Noah sure had a lot of patience.
